Candela Technologies Carries Out Large-scale Campus Network Testing with Edgecore TIP OpenWiFi AP


As a longtime member of TIP OpenWiFi, Candela Technologies is always looking to provide the best possible test solutions to help the community create high-quality Wi-Fi products. Speaking of high-quality TIP OpenWiFi products, Edgecore Networks cannot fail to be mentioned. Edgecore possesses a range of high-end access points that come preinstalled with TIP’s Open AP software, offering users an open platform for further customization. 

Combining Candela Technologies’ testing expertise and Edgecore Network’s high-spec access point, Candela has rolled out the WE-CAN (Wireless Education Campus Area Network) project, intending to install over a hundred Edgecore EAP101 TIP OpenWiFi access points in various college campuses across India and obtaining OpenWiFi AP performance results from the real world.



One of the successful networking tests was conducted at Gayatri Vidya Parishad College of Engineering for Degree & P.G. Courses (GVPCDPGC). Over 400 students participated in the event and engaged in access point set-up, firmware installation, and network testing etc. There were nineteen EAP101 APs deployed in a 27,000 sq ft area (one floor of the engineering building) with over 400 smartphones, close to 100 different phone models, all connected concurrently. With the latest Wi-Fi 6 technologies breaking the gigabit-per-second barrier for Wi-Fi traffic, the EAP101 APs supported over 400 smartphones for video streaming at the same time without any disruption. During the over 2 hours test, all the EAP101 APs were up 100% of the time without any reboots or crashes.



The results from GVPCDPGC not only show the rock-solid stability and reliability of the EAP101, but also demonstrate how successful an industry-academia cooperation can be. Based on the huge success of the GVPCDPGC test, Candela and Edgecore Networks have confidence in the upcoming testing at other campuse and believe the EAP101 is the perfect choice for a TIP OpenWiFi access point.
